Despite the poor services being rendered by telecom providers in Nigeria, a lot more people want to be involved in whatever the internet brings.
This could partly explain why Nigerians are getting their devices connected to the internet daily. The internet is no longer a luxury service as it used to be close to a decade ago. With N100 you can get 10MB of data per day, for most people, this a great, and for others, it is simply exploitative.
According to the Minister of Communication Technology, Dr Omobola Johnson, Nigeria now has 70 million active users, in comparison to 30 million active users in 2009.
Omobola also gave a hint on better broadband access for Nigerians before 2018. She said the sale of NITEL for $200m would consolidate on the process needed to make that feat a reality.
